$7 seems a bit steep for this museum but the building does need some help. Mostly memorabilia from minor local blues celebrities. The photographs by a local were fantastic. I'm hoping to contact him to buy some prints.

We were at this rather small museum in Leland, Mississippi in late February. There is a small charge for admission, and they are closed on Sundays. The museum is part of the historic Delta Blues area where so many great artists came of age and so much blues was written. There are storyboards, artifacts, and pictures of local blues musicians...

Nice museum that covers a lot of different blues musicians. It's not very big but they do cover a lot. Some of it needs some updating of information and refreshing some of the displays. But still nice and glad we stopped in.

Stopped into the Highway 61 Blues Museum and who sits down to play some blues? Pat Thomas. We're wandering through the collectibles and history, the posters and the old instruments, all the while listening to one of the greats, award winning Pat Thomas, playing live, just for us. Had a great visit, learned a little more about the Mississippi blues... More

This small museum honors the many legendary blues men and women that have lived in the Leland area. Records, photos, posters, music and stories of these musicians abound and are well presented. A nice stop along the Trail.

This place was awesome. So much information with pictures, instruments, albums etc. that it made my head spin. We weren't able to see Pat Thomas, the only disappointment. There were beautiful photographs of the artists.

Museum's are about telling stories. This museum tells the story of the blues in the Mississippi Delta. There are some great photos of the musicians. If you are in the area, you will want to visit.

We had the privilege of meeting Pat Thomas on the street. And then to hear him play inside. What a happy face to behold!
